Amenities: Parking

Length: 2 Miles

Surface: Forest path

Trailhead: Parking area on Horse Farm Road, 0.2 mile north of the junction with Hamilton Rd.

Features: Otter Creek Gorge Preserve Trail is part of the Trail Around Middlebury (TAM), a 17-mile loop around the Town of Middlebury. This section is along the Otter Creek.

Description:

After walking along a meadow fence line, you enter a wooded area passing several other trails and follow the TAM down toward Otter Creek. Cross the Dan & Peggy Arnold Bridge and continue south into the New Haven section of the Otter Creek Gorge Preserve and Wright Park. A short spur open for hikers and jog strollers only starts a few hundred feet north of the main entrance and continues down to a lovely pool and protected shore of Otter Creek. Jog strollers need to return along the same route. Hikers can continue on to Belden Falls; as you walk upstream there are excellent views of the deep and narrow Otter Creek Gorge. Hike this in the spring and hear the water thundering in the gorge!

Volunteer Surveyors: Macky Franklin and Adam Franco, David & Patty Hallam
